NY artist Faten Kanaan has signed to Fire Records and is putting the finishing touches to new album “A Mythology of Circles” which will be exploring mythologies behind cyclical repetitions in nature & time. Misty dream-states also inhabited by birds at dusk, madrigals, sleepwalkers, and the Hesperides.
Harmony and counterpoint are treated as narrative tools- with sound, silence, and the resulting mystical relationships between notes used as intuitive gestures to tell a wordless story.
Inspired by cinematic forms and mythological/folkloric story structures: from sweeping landscapes and quiet romances, to patterned tensions and dream sequences; she focuses on bringing an earthy, visceral touch to electronic music. In symbiosis with technology is an appreciation for the vulnerability of human limitations and nuances.
